Duchess of Cambridge's official portrait unveiled
LONDON- Royalty has many perks. There are titles, guards, and palaces. As the former Kate Middleton has discovered, you also get portraits.
The first official portrait of the Duchess of Cambridge, as Kate is formally known, was unveiled at the National Portrait Gallery today.
Paul Emsley's portrait shows the 31-year-old royal against a dark background with her lips pursed into a wry smile.
Kate and Prince William, who are expecting their first child, were on hand at the gallery for the portrait's unveiling. Kate told Emsley it was "just amazing." Her husband liked it too, calling it "absolutely beautiful."
Emsley told reporters that Kate wanted the portrait to "convey her natural self as opposed to her official self."
